The David Archer Band 

That’s a word you often hear when describing bands. In the case of the David Archer Band, this description seems inadequate. How can you describe a musical group as talented and versatile as this?

Party Music: The David Archer Band will have you and your guests dancing until your feet hurt! They have a great female vocalist who brings the music of Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer, Stevie Nicks, and also more current artists to the group’s
already extensive list of R&B, Motown, and other dance music. You will dance till you drop……and then you’ll beg for more!

Beach/Shag Music: Most of the band members grew up in the Charleston area and were exposed to the classic sounds of the ‘50s, ‘60s,and ‘70s in their formative years. All have been performing these tunes for many years and have the songs and the styles perfected. They perform many tunes by the Drifters, Tams, as well as R&B/Soul Music, Classic Rock, Oldies, and Motown.

Swing: This group of full time professional musicians all have a deep love for and the ability to perform an entire evening of the great standards of the ‘40s through the present. Of all the musical styles that they perform, this is perhaps their favorite. They can do justice to the styles of Duke Ellington, Stan Getz, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Harry Connick Jr. They also have the finest Saxophone player in the area. They loved and played Swing and Big Band Music long before it became trendy again!

Cocktails/Dinner Music: You and the band leader will choose the most appropriate music for your event. In addition to mellow Jazz and Swing, the band can play a variety of tunes from Van Morrison, the Eagles, James Taylor, the Beatles, to the soft ballads of today. The volume will be controlled so as not to interfere with normal conversation.

No matter if you are having a company party or wedding reception, the David Archer Band will make your event special. Their music will be the final ingredient in the perfect mix. Your guests will be talking about your event for many years to come. They will be talking about how the music was fun, and
very danceable, yet not too loud.

The David Archer Duo consists of guitar/keyboards/vocals and sax/flute/percussion. The duo has the ability to stroll with unamplified guitar & sax for a cocktail hour. By using a sophisticated keyboard arrangement, a full band sound is obtained with keyboards, guitar, sax, and vocals. All styles of music from Swing to Beach to "Brick House" are available.

The David Archer Trio* adds our female vocalist for a total variety sound in a compact, affordable package. The female vocalist is very interactive and adds to the fun of the event. All types of music including Disco and '80s-'90s dance music are added to the blend of standards, ballads, beach, Motown, and other styles that the duo plays.

*The David Archer Trio is generally not available on Saturdays as we usually book the full six piece band that day. If your event happens to be within a month or so, ask us if special arrangements can be made.
